Organizers should strictly follow the double blind peer review.

What is Double-blind peer review? It is also known as double-anonymous or double-masked review, is a process that hides the identities of both the author and the reviewer from each other. Only the editor of the manuscript is aware of the identities of both parties.

2.3.7. Role of Editors

Editors of the proceedings (who are members of the organizing committee of each event) are responsible for the editorial decisions and editorial processes. The procedures may vary from event to event. The editors of the proceedings are committed to ensuring the quality of the publication and to ensuring that the reported information is ethical, accurate and relevant to the journal. They have full independence and are not dictated to or influenced by any factors (political, commercial, etc.).
